Hookstratten, Lt. Robert (Bob): In DiBergis documentary, Hookstratten is the first to welcome Tap to Lindbergh Air Force Base in Seattle to play for its monthly "at-ease weekend." Admits that his aviators arent intimately familiar with Taps work but are "big fans" of "the whole genre of rock n roll." Misidentifies group as Spinal Tarp. By 1992, when Tap again toured the United States, Hookstratten had retired and "turned to religion" after a bullet came a bit too close on the firing range and a fire bomb was thrown under his car. He told an interviewer for Taps NBC-TV special that the band was a topic of conversation for years after their appearance. "We hated them." Hookstratten also revealed that making a snafu on the base became known as "pulling a Spinal Tap" and that he went on to produce an all-white version of "Porgy and Bess" that became known as "Hookstrattens Follies."
